Top Picks of Indonesia art events in Bali, Jakarta and Bandung from 26 February to 4 March 2018

We would like to begin by inviting you to Tour Nyanyian Anak Bintang event in Bali this Monday at Denpasar Kolektif. Nyanyian Anak Bintang is an album of songs that are written and sung by children from Rumah Bintang, a social organization based in West Java that is dedicated to help orphan and less privileged kids. In this tour, you’ll get to listen to the album and get to discuss the idea and creation process with Kang Niki from Rumah Bintang. As an extra bonus, you’ll also get to participate in a woodcut print workshop facilitated by Sindikat Pesta Kebon. For more information on the tour, click here.

Also in Bali this Monday, is a mask making workshop that is held as part of the Samadi & Luh Menek Mask Exhibition. Samadi is a master craftsman who has dedicated his life to the art of mask making. He also believes in preserving the tradition that has been passed on over generations. Luh Menek is a Balinese dancer who has made the Buleleng style dance from the Tejakula village famous. Samadi and Luh Menek recently received the Bentara Budaya Culture Awards that are given to people who have dedicated their lives in the arts. Through the art works, this exhibition aims to share the art makers’ achievements and dedication. For more information, visit Bentara Budaya Bali’s Instagram here.
